Comments on: Italy’s atheists to launch their own “no God” bus ads http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/01/13/italys-atheists-to-launch-their-own-no-god-bus-ads/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: sam http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/01/13/italys-atheists-to-launch-their-own-no-god-bus-ads/comment-page-1/#comment-10012 Sun, 01 Feb 2009 16:03:34 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=3322#comment-10012 God doesn’t hurt anyone, he isn’t responsible for the sick people in this world who hurt children. Why would someone do evil things to people? because there is a lack of caring on how they live their life. They don’t care, they want to do what they want to do. Evil is the absence of God. Even if there was no God, the bible is a good way to live your life. If people cared about what they did to each other, which is what the bible teaches, to love one another, we would’nt have these problems now would we?

Even if I didn’t believe in God, I believe in peace, and these ads are going to do nothing but get everyone angry, from both sides of the argument. It’s just so sad, these are going to do nothing but cause more hatred in this world..Do we really need more of that?

If God existed, he would have not been an onlooker while children, for example, are horribly injured and murdered?

If I did nothing I would feel complicit in these terrible acts of violence.

God must be hanging his head in shame?

I’m glad that these are countries that are free enough for people to express their religious (or irreligious) opinions in public. If I want to express my own opinions in public, I’d better be prepared to allow others to do the same. It’s good that these ads are starting conversations about religious beliefs.

Also, I read in a NY Times article that the word “probably” did not result from a lack of decisiveness on the part of British atheists. Rather, it was inserted because of advertising guidelines. Here is a link:

God said that because they did not want to believe in Him, he gave them over to strong delusion. That is why they can believe in evolution when scientific and observable proof is in front of them: God said He created all things with a seed in it to reproduce after its own kind; and it does. Everything from smallest creatures to man, grass, trees, and plants. He created the two that were necessary to reproduce. No small blob of evolution could live long enough to find a mate to gain another little peace of (what?).

Now for church correction: The Pope needs to correct his church; they fulfilled Daniel’s prophecy and changed times and seasons. That distorted Jesus as though he ended the Law of Moses. Only a false prophet was to do that. The church spread that through all the daughter churches of protestantism etc.

Muhammad was sent in 600+AD to say follow the whole Bible, not part. Jesus said to live by EVERY word of God. God told Moses not to add or take away from the word of God he gave him. Jesus gave understanding, not new teaching. He came to restore what was lost. All prophets came saying follow what is written, not the errors passed down.

Exodus 20: Ten Commandments says not to make images and to keep the 7th day, the Lord’s day, a Sabbath of no work for anyone. Exodus 12: New Year and Passover commands. Leviticus 23: God’s commanded Holy Feasts and memorial celebrations, and more Sabbaths of no work. (not to be changed or added to). Jesus comes again when His enemies are under His feet. His enemies are those who refuse to follow the word of God, the same yesterday, today and forever.

There will be no peace until we turn to restore God’s laws and follow them. Correction is needed now.

How many wars have there been, that had happened in the name of religions in the past anyway?
